get the sense in reading your work over the years that you are saying technology humanizes classrooms. if i am right about that, tell me why you believe that. >> when people talk about technology or virtual anything, they always imagine that somehow replacing a physical -- like amazon.com versus barnes and vulcans orlike the balkan tyhe borg in star trek. we are seeing in classrooms that technology is not used to demonize the classroom, but to go the other way. we are all sitting there physically with each other but not interacting. we are staring at the chalkboard and one person is lecturing. one student might be bored and one might be lost. the teacher is not getting a lot of feedback. we are saying let's use technology to take some of that off the teachers table so is not about eight lector anymore. it should be about interacting with your friends and the teacher and doing problem- solving. when i was in school, if a friend is having trouble with something and you whispered, you should look at it this way, you should -- you would get reprimanded. why are you talking? they should be
to create radical new energy storage technology. you know, way above what we have now. this is something very powerful, to be able to keep rovers going on the moon, in mars, things that could be useful, in your cell electric vehicles, something that just is a radical leap in new technology. but i don't want to go into a lot of detail on that. you'll hear more about nasa's efforts later. and what i'm going to do1r is ge a little more background on challenge-driven innovation. and i'm going to do that just by plaijerrizing some people because it makes it a loteasier for me. i want to look at this quote, prize is a very old -- an old idea that is surprisingly powerful in our modern society. this is by a study that by mckenzie and company, back in 2010. prize is a very old idea, very powerful in our modern society. surprisingly powerful in our modern society. mckenzie also said this, 32,000, in 2010, there were 32,000no competitions, competitions, prizes, awards. that's a big number. it could be bigger but it's a big number, for one year, 32,000 competitions happened. to continue on in myk

technologies like clean energy and fuel efficient cars. we know that our country is stronger when we can count on affordable health insurance and medicare and social security. when we protect our kids from toxic dumping and mercury pollution. when there are rules in place to make sure we're not taking advantage of by credit card companies or mortgage lenders or unscrupulous financial institutions. we know we're better off when politicians in washington aren't allowed to make decisions about health care that women are perfectly capable of making for themselves. that's what we believe. that's the vision that we embrace. i appreciate that. governor romney now, he's got an entirely different view about what this country is about. don't boo. vote. vote. he's been running around saying he's got a five-point plan for the economy. turns out it's a one-point plan. those at the top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates. outsource jobs, they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. that was the philosophy as ceo, as gover

to intro daus a lot of technology to help with the interoperatability of the civil military exercise. one of the main goals that we had for this was to allow our military a crisis response adaptive force package and opportunity to allow their training and certification in providing the most appropriate military expeditionary force for that scenario. one of the things that we realize in the military when we do these exercises in a foreign humanitarian response, that a lot of our military capabilities are not just for overseas foreign disasters but it also allows the military to be trained and certified to respond to local domestic disaster situations as well. i had mentioned that we had 22 nations participating in rimpac and this slide is a representation of the military and civilian partners that we had participating in this event. and we had many, many international partners and we had a lot of domestic partners: medical and military editionary partners as well. okay, this is our command and control slide. we took a lot of care to get this right. we wanted to make sure that we portra
. california the center of technological innovation. how did it happen? there is a spirit there about the open mind, about learning. you take a country like south korea, that in the early 60s had a g.d.p. the same as most african countries and today is first world. >> gavin: what is foundation what is the most exciting that you're working on? what is are you passionate about. >> the most difficult, and most exciting for me, i have two foundations. one in africa where we work along side the governments of africa to deliver change to the people in seven different african countries. called the big footprint and then an organization of religious and cultural exchange where we work in some of the most difficult countries in the world where people are educated in the way they think and look at each other. >> gavin: you're not just bringing in resources you're using your own human resource to get involved, hands on, i imagine. >> i raise money for my foundation. i gave my own money to them and i go out to 20 different countries. it's a political after life. not for you governor, yet at any rate. >> g
of that technology. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. i want to underscore the same point that the president made. i supported his action there. i felt the same as the president did. >> i think romney is leaning obama. >> it did not last long? >> we haven't heard an agenda for the president. >> team obama knows full steam ahead. the president went on a two-day battleground blitz this week or, as he calls it -- >> our 48-hour fly around campaign marathon extravaganza. >> speaking of extravaganza, did you hear about donald trump's big, huge, mega game changing bombshell announcement of president obama? yeah, neither did we. he did come out with this -- >> if barack obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications -- >> you get the point. but the president got the last laugh. >> this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> and from big hair to big bird. >> i'm glad to be the way i am. >> the halloween costume is already sold out this year with one man to thank. >> i like pbs, i love big bird. >> an
technology is here to explain. even when they say it's not it is always about money messa: so first let's take a look at the day's maet headlines. a rough-and-tumble week for stocks ending a on a quiet note. better than expected u.s. third quarter gdp data could knot offset worries about corporate earnings the dow eked out a gain of three points. good year was one of the biggest losers wi shares tumbling more than 10%. the tire-maker missed third quarter estimates driven by weakness in europe. one bright spot was expedia. shar soared 15%. they posted strong third quarter earnings fueled by a sharp rise in hotel bookings. >>> now to our top story. some people are calling it "frankenstorm". others call it a nor'easter-cane combination hurricane, nor'easter snowstorm or nightmare. if you live on the east coast you call it scary. hurricane sandy is making its way up the eastern seaboard. it may hit critical refineries that process 3.1 million barrels of oil per day. you know what that means. gas prices could go right back up. patrick dehaan from gasbuddy.com joins me with more on this one.
of the wto and it is the creation of the wto and it is in part because of technology. you had this per septible takeoff with respect to their relationship to the global economy of not just china but indca and parts of latin america and certainly eastern europe. you saw this all over the world. >> this would be reflected in the proportion of sales derived from overseas. the rapidly -- >> yes. >> steepning of that curve. >> so what difference should that make? well, it's to me part of it is -- part of it reflects yes outsourcing of jobs from the united states and from other advanced economies. and that has an income and jobs hit. but to me, the larger effect is for a second i tried to think like a microeconomist. this is globalization is actually about the creation of tens and tens of thousands of new businesses who are competing with businesses usually in their own home market. so chinese companies competing with u.s. companies in the chinese market. or in asian markets where china's exporting to. and also, the united states our companies competing more with european companies in chines
to an oilfield where companies like chevron having drilling for more than 60 years. but new technology would allow that drilling to expand to places where the oil lies much deeper. 14billion barrels of oil reserves could now finally be accessible in the hills and valleys beyond san ard doe in an area known as the monterey shale. >> these are source rocks for oil and gas. >> reporter: this physicist says shale oil is harder to harvest. you need go down and out horizontally in a technique called fracking. >> now we have technology, enabling technologies, that allow these reservoirs to be produced economically. >> reporter: with oil at almost $90 a barrel, he predicts things are about to change. fast. >> there's just a lot more activity and a lot of that activity is in places where there hasn't been much for a long period of time. >> reporter: in monterey county oil prospectors are knock on the doors of landowners trying to buy up leases. >> now all of a sudden, the people that drilled for oil are more interested in going out and getting these mineral rights for property owners. >> reporter: th
in technology because the agency's technology is really any pretty dismal state. the agency never has before people think that's great you don't need so many people because you're using technology. maxtor is for my entire career's technology allows you to work smarter and better and more efficiently, but it actually doesn't diminish the need for people because you find so many more things on your technology he to do market surveillance, to look for insider trading and market manipulation and analyze our mbs and how they've been structured and see what the flaws are. so while we put a big heavy emphasis on technology investment could we also need to invest in our people and we been able to grow a little bit in the last couple of years, not enough, but a little bit. i can't really give you a number. i will say that we are at agents to just under 4000 people, with extraordinary broad responsibility. everything from accounting standard-setting oversight to money market funds and mutual funds, to market berkshire. we all read every day about market structure issues come into broker-dealers and ho
guess since those days there has been one important improvement, one technological improvement, that we use expensively to create interoperatability and that is ip networks built of sdparate systems and the network allows us to operate. as you see from our demonstration as you checked in this morning, as you ridge stered this morning, san francisco talking it oakland, talking to this ship, talking over cellular, talking across and with different networks. the challenge for interoperatability is beginning to be met, i would say, the challenge for interoperatability at the same time is about to get much greater. we as a nation are about to embark on the most ambitous, most challenging communications endeavor that we have ever attempted, which is the creating of purse net, the public safety broad band or 4g network. and with that brings the promise of new challenges for sure in interoperatability and new capabilities that we have never had before. in fact, no other country is as far along as we are, even though we're just starting. what we see is the opportunity there to interoperate i
the radio. but with the military this is a whole new set of radio frequencies, radio technology, even before the planning we didn't know what they had. it took us several planning opportunities and meetings to flush through some of that information and one of the biggest take aways for us, as a city we're required to have a tactical interoperatable communications plan. it describes how you interoperate in an emergency or an event within the city as well as regional partners. we don't have that with military and i think that's one of the biggest take aways, we need to really flesh out a document so we have captured who our contacts are, what technology they are going to bring to the table and start that initial planning from the get-go. we also had some technical challenges with land mobile radio. you know, we have the coverage issues, but we were stationed at the san francisco police department command van, i had some very sharp people there who were able to work through a lot of those interoperatability issues so a huge thank you to the police department and also the fire department and
think that technology, let's say, a bunch of people going to a best buy and more inclined to buy products like this, is there a spillover affect in i think it's generally limit today that sphere and doesn't mean people buy more sweaters or-- >> i think it's very much limited to that sphere, but i think to your basic point, the energy initiative, creativity of people in the private sector who stand to make a great deal of money and prestige by creating something new, useful, wonderful, good looking and the computer wars, that's an overwelcoming incentive which the ordinary bureaucrat doesn't have. it's a shame and it would be nice if the bureaucrats could be incentivized in some way, but to take the minds of the person out of that, and compare it with the person out of commerce. >> apple-- >> i'm trying to think who was more offensive of my basic line of thinking. i think that ben was more in line until that zinger at the end and drew me in and says, okay, here. but go ahead. >> but apple, steve jobs defined the new apple by deciding what we needed and wanted before we even knew i
they rushed forward with the technology before it is as secure as it probably should be. charlie has given some terrific talks about the incentive structures of four software makers, -- for the software makers, and whether they are properly in balance with making sure the software is secure. but i will let him speak for that. f >> mr. miller, if you would speak to that? >> sure, we are in a situation where we all run code that was written by a vendor like microsoft or cisco or whomever, and the problem is is very difficult to write secure code. whetherhard to measure code is secure, so even an expert like myself, it is difficult for me to tell you given to programs which is more secure than the other. it is hard to measure and people don't want to necessarily pay for that. we all want to buy the latest gadget, the iphone that comes out or whatever, and we don't think to ourselves, how secure is this, maybe i should not by this because it is not secure. so companies, they are out to make money and that is what they are therefore, so they want to push products out the door, beat competitors,
sciences, and technology. >> off to the world of fashion now, which this we can be found not on the catwalks of milan, paris, or new york, but in south africa. >> that is right. african as well as international labels are showcasing the latest designs at the fashion week in johannesburg. >> african fashion has lately swung into the international spotlight with design is replacing bold colors and patterns with more contemporary designs. >> modern and confident -- the latest in south african fashion. the show was the hit of the festival. her cutting its creations have wowed critics. >> the techniques that i use, they make you feel -- like this one is not like what we know or what our people know. >> she is not the only hit designer here. african fashion has never been more popular. designers from ghana, morocco, and 10 other african countries have been showing off their creations in johannesburg. behind the scenes, for has been flying. african fashion is plugged into international trends. >> i am very excited because are looking and also the ladies, so i am hopingrything es

the technology in our ships was the best in the world. the results are true, that the training and the spirit of our sailors was superb. and we had absolutely first-class leadership in the navy. you will hear later today from admiral gary some examples of just how impressive that leadership is. the operational readiness of the fleet was a result, first of all, of having bases all around the world. but secondly because the strong program of exercise we conducted. the exercises were not only conducted on military scenarios, but we had an extensive set of exercises involved in humanitarian response. during the time i was secretary, we had a disaster response very similar to the one they're doing here in san francisco today. we bought naval forces from the united states, from russia and japan all to honolulu where we had simulated a tsunami disaster. and these three great nations brought their fleets to honolulu exercising how to respond and alleviate that disaster. well, that was then. how about now? last year the united states released a new security strategy. most of you probably have not even
the resolve and the resiliencke of these people. technology obviously was impacted so in order to get us a letter in the quickest amount of time possible, they typed it on an old typewriter, took a picture of it and emailed us the jpeg. no scaner, nothing like that, it was a jpeg of a leg. i said, good enough, it's a letter. we took that to ann kronenberg and said here we are, what can we do. in the meantime we did some brain storms, is this something real, is there any value we can add to this scenario? what we came up with was obviously we don't have the deep pockets to send over rebuilding teams or send over thousands and thousands of tons of material, that's just not what we could do. but what we could do is assemble a small team to go on a mission to van and meet them and talk to them and find out more about what do they need and is there an intersection of what we can do for them and in the meantime it gives us an opportunity to really look and see what the situation was and what we can take away from it. so that led to the next question, which all of us in government understan
with the most modern technology and 60 beds. he says there will treat anyone who comes for free. the intensive care unit is also finished. for months, the government refused to issue the clinic with the necessary permits because it was funded by ivanishvili. at least that might be resolved now that he is taking over as prime minister. he sees himself as the harbinger of a real democracy. he says he's giving the people of georgia and opportunity. they voted out the old government and if they don't like him, they can vote him out, too. >> piece is not something that simply happens. you have to work hard to achieve it. those were most committed deserve public recognition. that is what alfred nobel believed. for more than a century now, each year, individuals or the award in his name. this year, the prize goes to the eu. the prize reminds everyone there is peace in europe because of the eu. >> it is business as usual at the european union district in brussels. you would hardly know the eu had just won one of the greatest honors in the world, of the peace prize. >> we've been in brussels for two da

money? >> this is where we should be devoting our federal dollars, putting money into technology and science and research. >> and make sure we keep our pell grant program growing. >> i believe we do have to invest in our basic infrastructure. >> having good roads and bridges and rail lines and so forth and air traffic lines are essential for a strong economy. >> jon: that's picking winners and losers! investing in roads, rail and aircraft and saying yes, to cars, trains and planes but [bleep] buy cycles. it might be a good decision but it's still picking winners and losers and government has always done that want to build a highway? which winner construction company should build it? which loser town should it bypass. (laughter) again, maybe a good choice, but it's a choice. every decision government makes picks winners and losers. or maybe mitt romney and paul ryan don't think we should have picked losers and winners in world war ii. but unlike them, i'm glad we beat hitler.
